The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you need coat products that are manufactured to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Southern Barker stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
